Don't stop at Reds in Wiscassett, drive straight to Bet's in Boothbay Center. She has mastered the art of great roadside food by focusing on a limited menu and offering robust amounts of food. You will not be underserved with the "small plate" trend but...More

Get there early or she will sell out and you will miss out. Very generous portions along with some great Maine humor.

This is a small building easy to miss but don't pass this place by. When we were there it seemed to be a favorite of the locals. The serving are huge, hot and delicious. What I liked about the fish was the breading is lightly...More
